Jason Biggs -- My Malaysian Air Crash Joke Not Aimed at Crash Victims ... Huh??


Jason Biggs
may have apologized, but he made it clear today ... he doesn't really get why people were so pissed he cracked a joke about Malaysia Air almost immediately after the crash.

Jason flew into LAX and was willing to talk about the tweet that caused the firestorm -- but seemed to be saying people only got angry because they misunderstood the joke.

Jason told a photog, "I don't want it to be misinterpreted that I joked at their expense, so if I did that I do apologize."

Is there anyway else to take it?

Here's the thing. Good on Jason for apologizing if he felt it was necessary. But watch this clip -- kinda makes you think his apology was forced ... even though he claims it wasn't.
